The gemstone known as Pietersite was discovered by Sid Pieters in 1964 while he was prospecting in Namibia, Africa. Pietersite is a very lovely quartz gemstone and can also be known as Eagle’s Eye. This lovely example shows a deep blue color. There is also a striking golden bronze hue. For this design, I used four strands of Sterling Silver 1/2 hard 22 gauge wire and incorporated five Argentium Silver 1/2 hard 1/2 round wraps to form the bezel setting. Note the decorative spirals at the top and a double bail to suspend this lovely piece from a chain or cord. I hope you enjoy viewing and learning about it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Thanks for stopping by to visit my Eveolution Jewelry blog…My jewelry designs are all about the stories behind the art – As time moves forward, I will feature a new jewelry design. I’ll include a description of the item, the inspiration that guided the design, and points of interest.
Now, for the story about this lovely Agate and Silver wire-wrapped pendant. Friends of ours live in New Mexico. One day, we stopped by (O.K. – we flew from the Northern California Bay Area, rented an SUV, and drove to visit our friends living in a small town close by Santa Fe. While checking out some lovely rocks sitting in a shallow bowl, in the dining room area, I found this lovely Agate cabochon. I asked if I could borrow it and make a setting for it? Of course, my friend Kristy said. My lovely friend, Kristy, got this great pendant, and my husband Kelly and I picked up and adopted a very cute and sweet sighthound-mix dog named Izzy. Kristy and her husband rescued and rehabilitated Izzy from a dog fighting ring environment. I am not making this up! One never knows where a rock will lead you…
With this said, I hope you enjoy this first, very special design and I welcome you back, anytime, to view the design gallery. My intricate plan, yeah – right, is to add a new design image once every month or two. While I love jewelry design, I do have another business, Iron Dragonfly Inc., that provides accounting, bookkeeping, and small business coaching to a number of clients. This business does take up a certain number of hours in my day, week month. We will see if I can meet this lofty goal. In the meantime, enjoy!!!!
